The Boat School is located in Bayside Marina, Tierra Robada, and is unlocked after completing Pier 69. This is considered one of the easier schools, since none of the tests are particularly difficult like some in the other schools. Vehicles, once unlocked, spawn just north of the school.
- Bronze or better - Marquis
- Silver or better - Squallo
- Gold - Jetmax
You must complete this course in under 12 seconds to pass and under 10 seconds to get the gold. Throttle forward until just before the buoys, then hold Square until you stop in the designated area. Your score is solely based on time left.
PLOT A COURSE
You must guide the boat between 8 sets of buoys in under 40 seconds to pass. Keep the throttle pressed the whole time and use R1 to turn. It's not too hard to get a gold in this course. Remember to not hit the buoys.
You now have to use a Dinghy to navigate through a bunch of buoys in under 2 minutes to pass. The Dinghy is much more maneuverable than the boat before, so it shouldn't be too hard to get a gold in this one.
This is probably the most difficult of the boat school courses. You have to get at least 60 meters on the jump to pass. You need 65 meters to get a gold. Start off by going to the right so you can line up a straight on shot with the ramp. When you hit the ramp, make sure to pull back on the left analog stick to get more air.
LAND, SEA, AND AIR
You must navigate through 23 sets of buoys in under 3 minutes to pass this course. One thing you won't have to worry too much about is handling, since the Vortex has very good handling. Remember to keep the throttle down the whole time and avoid hitting any buoys. You shouldn't have any trouble getting gold on this one.
